Elton John's Greatest Hits (1st one). Vinyl. I didn't really buy it - it was a gift I asked for. First one I actually bought was either Beatle's Let It Be or CCR's Greatest Hits. Aerosmith's Toys In The Attic was also an early gift. All vinyl.

First GD album was What A Long Strange Trip It's Been - Best Of (long out of print I think). It had a studio version of Dark Star and lots of E72, but what really got my attention was the St. Steven. I looked for another St. Steven at the local record store (!) and ended up with Live Dead. I guess you could say that is when I got on the bus.

Edit: First piece of music I owned was a 45 of Olivia Newton John's "Have You Ever Been Mellow". The second was a 45 of Elton John's "Phily. Freedom" - the flip side had a "I Saw Her Standing There" with John Lennon, who I didn't know - I had a lot to learn.
